Memorial to Mark Two Years Since Deadly Plane Crash

The two-year anniversary of the plane crash that killed 49 people in Lexington is tomorrow. Hundreds of people are expected to remember the victims of Comair flight 5191 in a memorial service.The plane crashed shortly after taking off from the wrong runway at Bluegrass Airport in Lexington. Mayor’s office spokesperson Marianne Blodgett says the tragedy affected the entire community."Those of us who lived here probably know someone who perished," says Blodgett. "Also it gives the families an opportunity to come together and remember their loved ones in a public way and give an opportunity for them to show the community how much they appreciate the support they were given."Blodgett says music and reflection with be an integral part of the service, which will be held at the Mitchell Fine Arts Center at Transylvania University.
